How To Make a Bible Journaling Basket for Your Quiet Time

You know it’s time to get up because the sound of your cell phone seems to be piercing the darkness. You want to read your Bible but you don’t know where it is and your markers and pens must have wandered into one of your kid’s rooms. If only you had your Quiet Time supplies all in one place!

I have just the solution for you!

A Bible journaling basket for your Quiet Time!

You might even offer your child a reward if your pens are returned, right?

Sometimes I have had a special space for my Quiet Time and in other seasons that hasn’t been possible.

Here’s the thing . . . even when I have that special place to meet with Jesus . . .

My Bible or my favorite pen or gel pen comes up missing.

When you have to go on a hunt for your favorite Bible (since most of us are blessed with more than one) it is easy to get discouraged or distracted and go on to something else.

Like washing the dishes that appeared in the sink overnight!

Or by the time you wasted 15 minutes looking for your Bible, the kids are up.

And in case you don’t think it is possible that your Bible is somewhere else, come to my house! I love taking my current favorite Bible to my bedside table, the kitchen or um . . . the bathroom.

That is why I came up with the amazing idea of having a journaling Bible basket!

Besides, I love to do creative journaling art and there is nothing worse than having everything scattered all over the house. When it is all in one basket, it makes so much sense and makes life easier!

I am really stoked (that tells you I am beyond excited) about my basket idea!

The neat thing is that I went looking around the house and looked in closets and up in the attic for one. I found one that was being used for something else and repurposed it.

So, even though I am sharing some similar ideas from Amazon (my favorite place to shop) you can save yourself a bunch of money and use what you already have.

I found this big rectangle basket that I bought at Target. I also have an oval basket but to tell you the truth, I think the rectangle one fits the Bible perfectly.

What do you think?

All you have to do is collect your Bibles and supplies that you already have in your home and fill the basket. You will probably fill it up in no time!

I love comparing different Bibles because the different words used in various versions often give clarity to what I was having trouble understanding.

KJV Journaling Bible from Bourbon

Thrive Bible (NLT)

NKJV Journaling Bible

Then, I have Bible study tools that help me to rightly divide the truth.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Naves Topical Bible

 ‘Be Still’ Inspirational Adult Coloring Book Featuring Psalms

A spiral notebook where I record those I am praying for and sometimes my prayers. Click the spiral notebook below and find many more selections!

Then I have ‘Fervent’ by Priscilla Shirer so that I remember to read it.

To organize some of my journaling art supplies, I have:

  • Mason Jars with Crayola Twistables (which I love for coloring in verses I am highlighting)
  • Gel Pens
  • Micron Pens
  • And automatic pencils

Because my Bible journaling basket is a bit large, it is not easy to carry around the house. That helps me to keep it in one place and then it is always easy to find in the morning!
